Perched above the blue Tyrrhenian Sea, Sorrento has been a destination for travelers and pleasure seekers since the days of the Roman Empire. To the north stand the ruins of the ancient city of Pompeii, buried in 79 A.D. by an eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. To the south lies the fabled Amalfi Coast and the fishing village of Positano. Offshore, the romantic island of Capri awaits. And then there is Sorrento itself. Stroll through village streets lined with flowers or visit the imposing Duomo and its 13th-century cloister. Cafés and boutiques abound to charm the most experienced traveler.

In addition to its considerable charms, Sorrento is a gateway to the wonders of Capri, the ruins of Pompeii and the beauties of the Amalfi Coast.
